Where to Buy
Portions: 4


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 apples, quartered
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (preferably golden syrup, for its delicate flavor)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup (preferably golden syrup, for its delicate flavor)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 8 slices bakery-style multigrain bread
  • Butter for the pan
  • 1/2 lb cheese (Cheddar, Brie, Swiss, Oka, etc.), sliced


  1. Set a pan on medium heat, melt the butter, and cook the apples in it for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the cinnamon and 125 ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup, and cook 5 minutes more.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the milk, the 30 ml (2 Tbsp) maple syrup, and the vanilla.
  4. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture, a few minutes on each side.
  5. Preheat a large pan on medium heat, melt a little butter, and fry each slice 3 minutes per side. Keep in a 150° C (300° F) oven while you do the remaining slices, or use two pans.
  6. Serve sandwich-style: a slice of cheese between 2 slices of French toast, topped with apple sauce.
